A trusted SEGA leaker has posted a leak that a sequel to the beloved Demon Slayer: The Hinokami Chronicles is coming.

@MbKKssTBhz5, a.k.a Midori, posted this news on X/Twitter. Furthermore, the tweet now has over 290k views and 600 retweets.

The gaming community trusts Midori due to his consistent record. For example, he was right about his Persona 3 Reload and Shin Megami Tensei 5 leaks

The game may be released on PlayStation 4 and 5 and Xbox X/S systems like the original. However, there is no news about its release date.

The original game covered Season 1 and the Mugen Train arc of the anime. Hence, fans can expect the sequel to cover Season 2 and a portion of Season 3.

More about the original game

Demon Slayer Kimetsu no Yaiba: The Hinokami Chronicle was first released in 2021. It is also available on Steam for $60 and has a “Very Positive” rating.

Additionally, it was developed by CyberConnect 2, the same studio behind Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot, Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2, and JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle.

Hinokami Chronicles was praised for its visuals and action-packed gameplay. IGN gave it a 7/10, while Nintendo Life gave it an 8/10. Both sites acknowledge the game’s fun cutscenes and an in-depth arena combat. However, one of the complaints they mentioned is the limited roster players could choose from. Perhaps CyberConnect 2 can improve on this matter in the upcoming rumored sequel.

The game previously had a DLC back in 2022 where it added seven new characters from the second season. These include:

  • Tengen Uzui
  • Nezuko in her Advanced Demon Form
  • Daki
  • Gyutaro
  • A new form for Tanjiro Kamodo
  • A new form for Zenitsu Agatsuma
  • A new form for Inosuke Hashibira.

This rumored sequel to the Hinokami Chronicles isn’t the only recent Demon Slayer game. Nintendo recently announced that they’ll release “Sweep the Board” on April 26, 2024.

Additionally, Season 4 of Demon Slayer started with a world tour to entice new fans and reward loyal ones.
